The 2015 amendments to the FRCP elevated the importance of proportionality in eDiscovery, but has it lived up to its intended purpose? Tomorrow’s webinar will teach you about the past, present, and future potential of leveraging proportionality, both in practice and in the courtroom!
Tomorrow, ACEDS will host the webinar The Potential Promise of Proportionality: Platitude or Progress? at 1pm ET (noon CT, 10am PT). In this webinar, you’ll gain insight into:
- The judicial perspective on proportionality and what is expected from practitioners
- The interplay with early scoping and assessment, data minimization and targeting, and privacy requirements
- How to leverage proportionality to maximize future results
This webinar has something for everyone interested in making discovery more proportional – not to mention fans of alliteration! 😉 And, I’m excited to be participating in this panel with four experts on the topic of discovery and proportionality, including Judge Christopher P. Yates, 17th Circuit Court Judge, Specialized Business Docket, Michigan; Jonathan Wilan, Partner, Baker McKenzie LLP; Martin Tully, Founding Partner, Actuate Law, LLC and Mandi Ross, CEO, Prism Litigation Technology and Insight Optix LLC.
You can still register for the webcast here. According to eDiscovery Assistant, proportionality disputes were among the most common disputes last year, maybe even the most common by the end of the year! Will 2021 be the year for the legal community to learn how to manage proportionality effectively and avoid disputes? Join us and find out what the panel thinks!
Speaking of eDiscovery Assistant AND ACEDS, join Kelly Twigger and me today at 11:30am ET (10:30am CT, 9:30am MT, 8:30am PT*) for the ACEDS #caseoftheweek video broadcast here, where we’ll discuss the massive DR Distribs. v. 21 Century Smoking ruling from last month (which I covered here and here, the first two-part case law post I’ve ever done!). This case has more angles to it than a polyhedron! How many can we cover? Come find out!
So, what do you think? Are you interested in learning better ways to make discovery proportional to the case? If so, please join us! Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
